Its two on-board internal cache ports enables users to install mSATA flash modules to further enhance NAS performance for IOPS-demanding applications. The storage capacity of the TVS-471U series can be scaled up to over 1PB by attaching multiple QNAP RAID expansion enclosures (REXP-1600U-RP and REXP-1200U-RP).

“The dual-core TVS-471U series is designed for reliability and scalability, and delivers the performance necessary for operating multiple virtual machines using Virtualization Station and to edit large videos on-the-fly”, said Alan Lin, product manager of QNAP.
